Event Description

Reception: Saturday, April 2, 2-4 PM


BZ Reily, Julie Lapping Rivera and Diane Travis work individually and collaboratively. They also share a passion for empowering young artists through their work as educators. A thread that connects their work is the recycling of found materials and images.

Her work has been exhibited in galleries in the Pioneer Valley and in New England. Her most recent solo show at the D’Amour Fine Arts Museum in Springfield focused on found object quilts.

Her work has been exhibited nationally, most recently in Romare Bearden and Friends, in New York. Her works on paper combine printmaking with collage and drawing She often juxtaposes art historical images and references to create new meanings. Her work explores themes of human interaction.
